    DescriptionFinally in paperback, this "monumental collection; gathers all of Babel's deft and brutal writing, including a wide array of previously unavailable material, from never-before-translated stories to plays and film scripts" (David Ulin, "Los Angeles Times"). Reviewing the work in "The New Republic," James Woods wrote that this groundbreaking volume "represents a triumph of translating, editing, and publishing. Beautiful to hold, scholarly and also popularly accessible, it is an enactment of love." Considered one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century, Isaac Babel has left his mark on a generation of readers and writers. This book will stand as Babel's final, most enduring legacy. Winner of the Koret Jewish Book Award; A "New York Times" Notable Book, a and "Library Journal" Best Book, a "Washington Post" Book World Rave, a "Village Voice" Favorite Book of the Year.
